Tabacelia Daniela, Ilie Madalina, Ene D., Constantinescu G., Macovei B., Asmarandei R., Stanciulescu Elena- Luminita, Diaconu Camelia, Popa B.
Abstract: Ectopic pancreatic tissue is most often an incidental finding of imaging, surgery, or autopsy. Image-guided diagnosis is difficult and definitive diagnosis usually relies on histological analysis. A case of ectopic pancreatic tissue located near the lesser curvature of the stomach complicated with acute ectopic pancreatitis is presented followed by a brief discussion of the clinical management of heterotopic pancreas.

Keywords: pancreatitis, heterotopic pancreas, ileus
